    between the 6 and 6 Plus? I've been trying to google and couldnt find anything. I'm a horrible indecive guy and ive messed with them both, i love the big screen on the iphone 6 plus, but i also dont mind the smaller one, the battery is a huge plus but what are the specific feature differences.

    Plus has Bigger Battery - Better Camera - Various iPad based Screen Options for Email, homepage rotate - Your friends avatars show up in iMessage. As for the key feature its pretty obvious that its the larger screen.

    The 6+ has..
    - Bigger Screen / 1080p Resolution
    - Optical Image Stabilization Hardware
    - Landscape Mode that is more like "iPad Mini" with photos in iMessage
    - Bigger Battery Life that lasts on average 3 days instead of 2

    Thats it.

    Landscape mode = splitscreen list/content views


    If you really don't know all the differences, you might want to check out the link in my signature. It's kind of a questionnaire, you count together points for several questions and it tells you whether your preferences are leaning toward a 6 of 6 Plus.

    1) Larger battery
    2) Camera has optical image stabilization
    3) Larger screen size at 401 PPI, instead of 326 PPI. (Hardly can see the difference)
    4) Landscape mode

    Some things to note

    - Benchmarks scores maybe 1-5% slower
    - Known software lagging due to the up and down scaling of images

    As someone who had both for over a week, it wasn't noticeable.
    Real world usage for me was identical. Neither displayed any noticeable speed or lagging differences both were smooth to use.
    And that was from using both first hand for a few days each. I settled on the plus after that and haven't regretted it.
